Language Teachers

There are many good reasons to start learning a language. Mastering a foreign tongue however can be hard, and language teachers know that all learning methods have their pros and cons.

Some methods are highly effective with some learners and inadequate for others; some only work in certain contexts; some favour oral communication, some the written word.

Most teachers would however agree that extracurricular activities and learning outside the classroom can considerably boost the learning process and lead to better outcomes. focuses on actors in non-formal education such as pre-school teachers, trainers and educators in lifelong learning, and helps them by:

  • Disseminating best practice in education with regard to multilingualism as well as multilingual education;
  • Collecting information on motivators in language learning;
  • Showcasing research in best learning methods and the factors that facilitate multilingualism;
  • Creating a catalogue of on-line resources for language learning.
